A very nice movie about how money corrupts people, even the most honest and conservative ones. Beside being a bit slow, the movie is really very good. The character and story development is very satisfactory. The acting performance of actors was quite good. The plot was clear, consistent, interesting, well thought and novel. The psychology of the main character was given pretty good. The only point I found a bit weird was the end. It could be a bit slower, like some slow motion or some conversation. It reminded the old movies where the story was ending suddenly. Nevertheless, it is a decent movie with a very nice story and pretty good acting.
